The most important thing to realize about David Eldridge's adaptation
of the book by Hallie Rubenhold was the lack of power given to any wife
in the eighteenth century. They were simply regarded as a husband's
property, denied any possibility for self- determination. This film
explored the ways in which the eponymous central character (Natalie
Dormer) tried to circumnavigate the law.
Told through flashbacks, we learned how Lady Worsley had a sexless
marriage to Sir Richard (Shaun Evans). Rather he forced his spouse to
make love to a succession of titled nobles, while he watched them in
the act through a keyhole - the supreme act of voyeurism. Unfortunately
things go terribly wrong when Lady Worsley falls in love with Captain
George Bisset (Aneurin Barnard). There follows a protracted court
battle, where Sir Richard tries to obtain £20K in compensation from
Captain George for hurt feelings, while steadfastly refusing to allow
his wife a divorce.
Natalie Dormer portrays Lady Worsley as a woman trying to make the best
of an impossible situation. Forced into a series of unwanted
relationships to satisfy her husband's vicarious lust, she has
cultivated an inscrutable outward shell as a means of self- protection.
During the act of love-making her face remains impassive as she looks
to her right at her husband staring through the keyhole. In public she
maintains a similar expression, especially when confronting her husband
over the possibility of divorce. In one sequence she is shown walking
away from his stately home, her face staring impassively at the camera.
No one, it seems, can penetrate her tough exterior.
Yet perhaps she needs to cultivate that facade in order to survive.
Captain George comes across as something of a hypocrite who professes
his undying love for Lady Worsley yet cannot accept the sexual
humiliations she has undergone. He still believes in that patriarchal
construction of female purity, especially in someone he hopes to marry.
Eventually he decides to leave Lady Worsley as he proclaims in
uncertain tones that he no longer loves her. Whether this is true or
not is immaterial; we realize at this moment that he lacks any real
moral or intellectual fiber, preferring instead to embrace the majority
view that women should be servile to all males.
Although set in the eighteenth century, THE SCANDALOUS LADY W makes
some important points about the necessity for female self-
determination. Even in our so-called enlightened world, there are
millions of women worldwide who are faced with similar dilemmas as
experienced by Lady Worsley, and have to find the best means to
